Burgh Island, Bigbury-on-Sea, near Kingsbridge

Created By Kate Rew for Outdoor Swimming Society

From the beach at Bigbury you can swim - given good weather and the right point of the tide - right around Burgh Island.

It will take about an hour and is only possible at slack tide. The sea is cold so you ought to wear a wetsuit on this rather long swim, but you will have the fun of exploring the rocky coastline and watching walkers on the cliffs above.
